Quick & Easy Christmas Card Ideas

The holidays are quickly approaching, and if you are like me, there isn’t a lot of left over time for making handmade Christmas cards. But what about cards that are quick and easy to make and so very cute too!! It’s Mary Ann here today, and with the “Holiday Season Quilled Cardmaking Kit”, I was able to make these sweet little cards in just minutes. The kit is color coordinated, with lots of pieces to mix and match, so all I had to do was choose my card base, then start layering the die cut pieces.

For this fun snow globe card, I started with the green hounds tooth base, added the white rectangle, and layered on the pieces to make the snow globe along with the white swirl and holly leaves.
